Lev 26:36 And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.

1 Tim 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
The neighbors pretend to not notice as the proud family swims by.
Psa 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.Psa 127:4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.Psa 127:5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
